What Really Happens at Your Local Library

You'll view the public library in a whole new light after you read Free for All: Oddballs, Geeks, and Gangstas in the Public Library by Don Borchert. This memoir of an assistant librarian at a California library reveals, among other things, that sex offenders, drug dealers, and gang members are just as likely to roam the stacks as preschoolers, students, and senior citizens; that books are not the only items put in the book drops; and that even seemingly cheery, mild-mannered librarians have a breaking point. Often laugh-out-loud funny, occasionally poignant, and always entertaining, this book features a library that is a microcosm of public libraries around the nation.
